Went to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Have never eaten in here before, was not disappointed. Recommend by many and it deserves its praise. Food was excellent and freshly cooked, they warn you there may be a wait....but it's worth it. Was not busy as it was a week night, staff very welcoming and friendly. Would definitely recommend it and will... More

Was the first time of visiting since walking out last August. (See my previous review). New owners seem more friendly and one important note that they now provide a menu for "those of a smaller appetite". Basically a child's menu but hopefully not restricted to children only. This time my appetite was fine so ordered from the specials menu. Fillet... More

We've visited this pub once before in 2011 and here we were for our second visit, and again enjoyed a warm welcome, with very refreshing beer/lager after a long rather painful walk for me this time from Whitstable. We were so pleased to find the pub open during the afternoon and sat outside and people watched. Our short stay here... More

Walked from Tankerton on Easter Sunday having booked Sunday lunch. The walk in lovely weather took about 90 mins, but we are slow walkers. Good job we booked as the pub was full. The service was very efficient and food of high quality. All in all a nice experience in what is a clearly well run pub. I would add... More

It was a long walk from where we were staying but it was worth it. I went with five friends and we got a lovely reception from the staff, having never been there before. Recommendations were made on beer and tasting offered. We had a very pleasant dinner, mine was the lemon sole, which was beautifully cooked. Companions who had... More

Booked up and were glad we did as the pub was very busy. Both the landlady and landlord were attentive and helpful. The food arrived quickly and was lovely with great crispy parsnips. The beef was the best I have had at a pub Sunday lunch, sirloin. Everyone enjoyed their meal and the atmosphere was brilliant. Puddings were the normal... More

Was a darts night and busy with regulars. Had to wait ages to be served as bar maid made sure she looked after her regulars before acknowledging us. When I ordered from the cocktail menu, which is displayed prominently above the bar, the bar maid pulled such a miserable face and told me I'd have to wait a while. Making... More

We booked the Hampton for a Sunday lunch for my mum's 70th. Georgina the landlady was great at communicating with us beforehand and made us feel that everything was in capable hands (esp as we don't live locally so it was all by phone and email). On the day, the pub was busy but the team there had decorated our... More
